About Kathleen and Gregg

We have had such a wonderful summer of guests enjoying our house in 2014. We have decided to offer a 15% discount on the weekly rate to all of our 2014 guests. Please contact us and we will send you a special quote. We really appreciate you taking such good care of our house!!

Living in Venice is living a dream come true. We are so thankful to live in such a beautiful place in this world. We purchased this house last May, and are so enjoying the beach, the pool, the historic town, and the quaint small town feel of this spot in paradise.

Kathleen and Gregg purchased this house in 2013

Why Kathleen and Gregg chose Venice

We love our little downtown with boutiques, shell shops, clothing, shoes, and designer home shops. The restaurants are excellent, and there are so many, you could try one every day you are on vacation!! The town was originally designed by urban designer John Nolan, whose grandson is a friend of our son!! There are many amazing parks like the palm park and the arboretum park with all the trees and plants labeled. There are many beaches on the island, with different feel of the beach to explore. The best fun we have is collecting shells and sharks teeth, which we display in our home. This is one of only a few places you can find the fossilized sharks teeth on Florida beaches. The water here changes from day to day, but we love to explore the shallow water and sand bars near the beach with snorkeling. We see many dolphins swimming just yards from the edge of the waters, many different fish and have even seen a small sting ray. We have so many different types of birds, pelicans, blue herons, egrets to mention a few. The best thing about our house is it is in a quiet neighborhood, and so close to the beach, it only takes a minute or two to walk over there.

What makes this house unique

Venice House has been designed and furnished as a Mediterranean Villa with 2500 square feet of living space to enjoy. Our pool is heated and very enjoyable and relaxing. It's really great to come back from the beach and head straight into the pool!! The house has a beautiful new kitchen with high quality appliances and granite counters. Every bathroom is granite and tile, and the floors are marble tile inside, wood or wool carpeting. This is a designer quality home, with all the rooms furnished by a local interior designer. It is wonderful to sit on the front porch in the morning and enjoy the sunshine and the archways which look out on to our tropical palm trees and plantings.

Great House & Great Location

Great House & Great Location
  • 5 of 5
The website made this house seem perfect, so we had high expectations, but the house was even better than anticipated! The common areas (living room, kitchen, outdoor pool area) are very spacious and make it easy to enjoy family time without feeling cramped. The pool is nice and bigger than many residential pools, and there is lots of seating both in the sun and shade around the pool, along with ceiling fans in the patio area to make it comfortable to sit outside on a hot day. It's all very nice and new and well-maintained.

Unlike some beach rentals, this home provides some basic necessities that made it MUCH more convenient for us, like hand soap, trash bags, dishwashing soap, tissues, and kitchen staples like sugar and coffee filters. Those were all really appreciated.

The location is fabulous. The beach is literally one block away - it's a very short walk and even on a holiday weekend, this beach was not overcrowded. We loved that the owners provided some beach chairs and two sifters for using at the beach to find shark teeth. Venice has TONS of fossilized shark teeth (you can read about that elsewhere if you're not familiar - it's REALLY cool) washing up on its beaches and once you find one, it becomes addictive! Our entire family found ourselves spending hours in the surf looking for shark teeth, and we brought home more than a dozen that we found. It was also really nice that this beach had a snack bar offering full meals, restrooms, a full-time lifeguard, and lots of free parking (in case you want to take a bigger load of beach equipment than you can carry).

I can't say enough good things about this house. We will definitely stay here again!

Fantastic Venice vacation

  • 5 of 5
This house offered everything we were looking for in a beach house: great screened in pool, beautiful covered patio, easy walk to a fantastic beach. No complaints at all. The house is beautifully furnished with everything you need for a comfortable stay and a great time at the beach. It is literally three blocks from a public beach that is never crowded and has a lifeguard station. Within five minutes you can be at the jetty watching dolphins or at Casperson Beach collecting shark teeth. Plenty of good dining options in and around town as well.

Fabulous home near the beach

  • 5 of 5
Our kids and grandkids all wanted to come visit us in Venice at the same time and our condo just couldn't accommodate them all so we rented this home for them to stay in. When they arrived they called us to say WOW! The home is beautifully furnished and decorated, has a wonderful kitchen, lots of room and a great, private, screened pool. Location is great one block from Venice city beach and a convenience store and just a few blocks from the restaurants and stores downtown. We hope to stay again!

Our first visit to Venice

  • 5 of 5
I can honestly say this was the best vacation we've had! The home was welcoming and comfortable. The amenities and layout were perfect to accommodate our needs. We spent many hours sightseeing and to have a place we could call home to come back to at the end of a long day put us all at ease. We spent many nights enjoying the swimming pool with our children. A definite positive experience! Thank you Kathleen and Gregg... We'll be back next year... :)

Wedding week sanctuary

  • 5 of 5
Although I didn't personally stay at the home, as this was a rental I booked for my parents to attend my daughter's wedding, my parents did and all reports from them were that everything exceeded their expectations. They found all the furnishings to be very comfortable and could not think of an amenity that your home was lacking. The location to the beach and downtown added to their enjoyment.

Wonderful home, wonderful owners!!!

  • 5 of 5
Me and my husband can't say enough positive about this residence! This home is only steps away from the beach yet on a quiet street. The home was with a lot of personal touchs from Kathleen and Gregg. Very clean and things you would not find at most rentals such as the use of their baskets to hunt shark teeth. We stayed the last time in Sarasota under a VRBO rental but it was rented with a broker. It was so nice having a garden hose outside to rinse beach gear off, enough plate service and dishes to actually bake cookies and meals on with extra touches of laundry detergent, dish soap and toilet paper to cover your initial stay. Many places I have rented in the past don't offer the special touches we saw with this home. It is located within 1-2 miles from Sharky's for public fishing and very close to the jetty. We cannot wait to rent from them again next summer; as we hope to never have to rent from anyone else in Florida other than Kathleen and Gregg!

Walk for miles along the beach or out on the jetty to see the beautiful sunsets here in Venice. Right at our beach we dig for sharks teeth which are fossilized, and are sometimes seen on top of the sand and surf. Lots of fun.

Venice house is located at a premium island location close to everything, Our quiet neighborhood provides the ambiance to appreciate island sounds and lifestyle. Enjoy the undiscovered Florida, Venice Island beaches have no crowds. On Florida's west coast you will be able to enjoy the warmer waters of the Gulf of Mexico. We are located close to Florida attractions without staying with the crowds of tourists. Venice Island has beautiful beaches lined with sand dunes and the sounds of the Gulf waters. Come in October and watch Sea turtles nesting and hatchlings running to the water.

Venice is a wonderfully quiet small beach town with fine restaurants, lovely shops and a small theatre just waiting to be explored. Venice library, community center, and art center are just blocks away. There is a lovely central park which has the sidewalk fountains for children and adults to run through. Huge banyan trees cover walking trails which take you straight to the beach. Rental shops are available for boating, kayaking, wind surfing, para-sailing, water skiing, snorkeling, deep sea diving and fishing. There is a large pier is on the island, and can be used for fishing with no license required. Other activities on the island are an 18 hole golf course , and a small airport where you can take sightseeing plane or helicopter rides. Just around the corner from the house is a small convenience food shop with many beach items such as sunscreen and hats.
